About Swain Wodening

Swain Wódening, one of the founding members of Englatheod and the Ealdriht, started his Heathen life back in 1984 along with his brother. He learned of the AFA the year it disbanded, but in 1989 he learned of and joined the Troth. Shortly thereafter, he learned of Theodism, then solely an Anglo-Saxon phenomena, and joined the Winland Ríce in 1993. He rapidly advanced to the arung of lord by writing articles and attracting new members. In 1996, after several disputes with the leadership, he left to form the Angelseaxisce Ealdriht with Winfred Hodge Rose. The Ealdriht eventually became the Miercinga Theod in an effort to encourage regionalism, and to return to a purer form of Theodish Belief. He led that organization until June, 2006 when he resigned to seek a deeper spirituality. Swain is currently a member of Wednesbury Shire of White Marsh theod.

This is a great little book for anyone who is contemplating the addition of ancestor veneration to their traditions. Swain brings his usual skills as an adept wordsmith to the game here as he covers everything a modern day Heathen (or Pagan) might need to begin honoring those who have gone before. There is a lot of helpful information packed into this little tome. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who walks in the old ways.
